SSA administers CVCB on behalf of the State of California. If an SVB recipient meets
the CVCB eligibility requirements (discussed in VB 01305.003B.3.), monthly CVCB is combined with SVB and the two are issued as one monthly payment.
CVCB is payable only for months during which the person is entitled to receive an
SVB payment (in any amount). Therefore, if it is later found that SVB is not payable
for a month during which a CVCB was also paid, the person is overpaid both SVB and
CVCB for that month.
NOTE: SVB and CVCB overpayments are considered to be separate overpayments. However, where
an SVB overpayment results in a CVCB overpayment, the total overpayment will be shown
on the SSR as a single overpayment event for recovery purposes. VB 02005.112 provides instructions and references for the documentation of SVB/CVCB overpayments,
and VB 02005.215C. provides an explanation.
